Introducing Dil Chaska

A coined terminology of DILCHASP & CHASKA. The name is every feeling pickles and masalas offer. The indigenous touch to the name also showcases the originality every pickle holds. The subtle message of DIL KA CHASKA also expresses the feeling one gets from the pickle. Not just the consumers, the name also suggests that the person behind the products makes it from the heart and crave to make more & more.
